Raw banana's cooked in a spicy coconut mix
I had no clue what to do with the raw bananas I picked up on impulse at the Indian grocery store a few days back and before it rotted in my fridge, I had to rescue it. I honestly didn't even know what the real name was, to do a google search, but lucky for me, I stumbled upon the 'Vazhakka Thoran' recipe Collaborative Curry had posted a while back and blindly followed it, with the assumption we were both talking about the same thing :)
It tasted excellent (although I have no clue how it was supposed to taste) and Ro and myself enjoyed it with hot rice, curd and pickle...absolute comfort food, I must say!
The only change I made was, I added a 1/2 tsp kashmiri chilli powder because I did not have green chillies and I guess that's why the colour is a bit different from theirs.
White Chocolate Cookies
I came across this recipe Dimah of Orange Blossom Water had posted and had to give it a shot. I love white chocolate and ended up eating quite a bit of the cooking chocolate I picked up for this recipe. I omitted the lime zest, but followed the rest of the recipe to the dot. I also wanted to do the drizzle, but chickened out at the last minute due to sheer laziness. I couldn't wait to dig into it and so ate quite a few before cooling them and boy it tasted so good..nice and warm and the chocolate chunks lightly melted. Its a definite keeper.
